Big East Tracker 3.0

Three teams, one spot. The Big East as we know it is dwindling down to the close of its regular season, and the title is still looking for its rightful owner. More inside.

With the final week of the Big East regular season upon us, the last three standing are still all alive in the quest to be crowned regular season champions as well as obtaining a bye through the first two rounds of the conference tournament.

Here is an update on what each team needs to happen in the conference's final days of the 2012-13 regular season:

For the Georgetown Hoyas to win:

Currently at 13-3, winning their last two games solidifies the Hoyas in first place.

Louisville has edged closer at 13-4, but if they, or Marquette, end the season in a tie with Georgetown, the Hoyas have the advantage in their head-to-head tiebreaker over both teams.

For the Louisville Cardinals to win:

Louisville broke away from a closely-contested game with Big East adversary, the Cincinnai Bearcats, on Monday to rise to 13-4. They will now need to emerge victorious at home on Saturday, March 9th, against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish as well as hope Georgetown loses their final two games to take the top spot from the Hoyas.

For the Marquette Golden Eagles to win:

Marquette was successful in their second-to-last match of the season, winning on the road over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, moving them to 13-4.

They will still need Georgetown to finish 0-2 (13-5) and Louisville to close their season at 0-1 (13-5), while they themselves must win on the road over the St. John's Red Storm to creep up and claim the Big East regular season title.
